Interview with Lorna Lawson
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Do I have a song that fits the style their looking for? The answer is usually yes, because I write for several genres
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To give them great service.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to know first of all what genre (ex: gospel, contemporary christian, R&B gospel, country, etc.) is the client looking for and what idea is the client gearing towards in terms of song subject (ex:worship, praise, hurt, unity, love, encouragement, etc.). I also like to hear or discuss the artist singing style. Then I send samples of what I may already have on file or a sample of something newly written based on the style description given by the client and take it from there. If the client is satisfied with the direction we move forward, if not, I send other options for the client to choose from until we reach a consensus.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: CeCe Winans, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Tamela Mann, Yolanda Adams, and Travis Greene. I love the way they minister when they sing. It takes the song to another level, and they sing from a place of authenticity (you really feel their heart and soul in a song).
